Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5327

Hey, speaking of shitty drivers, the asshole who rear-ended my Jeep today blew a .267 when the cops showed up!

My son was in the car with me, but neither of us have any obvious injuries (we'll see how everyone is feeling in the morning).

I also don't see any major damage to the Jeep, but it was dark, cold and rainy, so I'll have to reassess in the daylight. I did detect something that felt "off" when I drove home, so I'm pretty sure it's not 100%, but it's at least driveable until I can get it sorted out.

Regardless, dealing with cops and the insurance company was not the way I'd planned to spend my evening.

On the bright side, that drunkbro is fucked. (And good to hear nobody seems to have been hurt.)

Ugh, sorry to hear that. Glad everyone is ok.

Glad no one was hurt, G. Hope the wheels are okay too or at least that the perp has good insurance.

Sorry to hear it and I hope it all works out okay.

Surprised he could walk to his car and turn the ignition with a .27

My uncle got pulled over for a field sobriety test once, before Breathalyzers were common. He passed the test, but the cops were suspicious and made him come in for a blood draw. Came up as 0.32%. A normal person would be blacked out, but hardcore alcoholics can apparently pass sobriety tests.

Harv would not have submitted to the field sobriety test in the first place.

You probably already know this, but there's something called functional alcoholism, which is when you have to have a drink before anything else in the morning, so you can function. It sounds like your uncle could go into that category.

The idea that you would test a field for sobriety just don't make no sense it's no wonder we got drunk drivers on the road what the police be testing the wrong thing entirely. (Must needs test the man hinself.)

He was drinking a case a day at that point, so I'd assume so.

He went into alcohol withdraw when he was admitted to the hospital for cancer treatment. Made the whole thing that much worse.

An entire case of beer? My goodness... it would take me a week to drink a case.
